So it is bon voyage to one of the most entertaining mags in the DC pantheon as Agent Orange, Larfleeze himself, bids goodbye to his own title with issue #12 this week.

While admittedly not a regular reader (maybe that is the trouble?), I frequently “peeked” at the fun and humorous cosmic shenanigans writers Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis were having along with the always-appropriate drawings of Scott Kolins.

And while not on any regular pull list, I can never recall saying or writing or thinking anything bad about this book, which is certainly not the case with Threshold, where this strip started as a backup.

I have really been enjoying Giffen and DeMatteis’ dip into Larfleeze’s psyche and past, his battle with greed, and the supporting characters – humorous and otherwise – have been, well, out of this world!

Larfleeze has never been at the top of my list, but it has never been a disappointment when I did check it out either.

Maybe a backup for the Orange Lantern in one of the current Green Lantern books is in order. Yeah! DC?
